(Yes, I know, not the best ingredients list.) Brush of choice Yaqi 30mm tuxedo: I started with a wetter brush the first time I used it and the result was a mess. A foamy cloud of a thing called lather, no good and even if I added some product it was still a mess. Hmm, this cream is very sensitive to water, at least for my tastes. In order to get a creamy lather the brush should be almost dry, squeezed very well and literally add two or three times water and spin. Then the cream explodes. First pass with the Rockwell 6c on #6 was very comfortable. The blade was the Gillette Silver Blue, but keep this in mind when reading. The lather, when the ratio water-cream is good performs very well. It does not dissipate at all, allowing the razor to glide easily on the skin. For the second pass the face should not be very wet, or else the lather even if it looks thick, it gets runny and thins immediately. When applied the cream for the XTG pass, it slightly tingled my face, like some kind of reaction or small burning, but only on the second & third pass. The lather again stayed on the face, was even slicker that the first pass, no problem with that. I didn't like a lot the residual slickness, you must not shave where there is no lather, because I felt the razor to catch me a lot. Especially on the chin/double chin. Minor nicks was the result. On the last ATG pass when I applied the cream, was even thinner but slick, allowing to feel the blade a lot when shaving. Here comes the matter with the GSB. With these blades I rarely get razor burn or nicks. But I had this time. If I had a more aggressive blade in there, I would have sliced my face. The burning sensation kept for a while, so I assume that when you get irritation with the razor, the cream does not help calm the skin very well. Maybe the sensitive version will be better on this section but I haven't used it. The result was good, I liked the smell, manly and quite strong when lathered up and stays for a while. Don't take too seriously the burning sensation, maybe it's my face, it is sensitive and prone to razor burn, this was the main reason I started wet shaving. Or maybe it was simply some ingredient that caused this. No redness, whatsoever, quite dry post shave feel and the nicks in the end were no visible. Don't forget the price of this cream. I would recommend it but only to a more experienced shaver, because you must have really mastered the technique first, this cream does not forgive any mistakes with the razor, either the angle or pressure.
